A New Day

Eyes heavy with crushing fatigue flicker and close

The blackness of out becomes that of in

An uneven sleep brings some relief from the horrors of the day

Part of me hopes not to wake

To get relief from the crushing weight of others

Part of me needs to wake

Believing it can not become much worse

My dreams allow little rest

Roused from slumber

The sun peeks above the horizon

Upward it creeps

Darkness of night given light

Shining upon the earth

A glow



Life giving

To replace the sorrow of one

A new day given

To once again strive

To once again try

To once again hope

For just one moment

For just one second

To feel a slight bit of joy

To know just a small period of happiness

To once again not wish to die
